Helena smiling 2

Space Monsters magazine would like to wish Barbara Bain a very happy 82nd birthday today! Barbara will always be our favourite Space Babe for her wonderful portrayal of blonde beauty Doctor Helena Russell on the classic Gerry Anderson television show Space:1999. Born September 13th 1931, Barbara had a successful career as a model before turning to acting where she achieved fame (and three Emmy Awards) for her performance as agent Cinnamon Carter in the hit spy series Mission: Impossible opposite her husband Martin Landau. The pair left the series at the height of its success and went on to co-star in Space:1999 which ran from 1975 – 1977 and was a smash-hit around the world. Bain has continued to have a successful career both on stage and screen and has also appeared at Space:1999 conventions over the years.

You can read much more about Space: 1999 in issue one of Space Monsters magazine which is on sale from various outlets across the UK and the United States or you can order direct from the publishers courtesy of the Classic Horror Campaign website.
